Carrd

Simple, responsive, one-page sites for pretty much anything.

Carrd is great if you need a static landing page. You can get up and running quickly using a subdomain, or you can use your own.

Carrd is the best one! Easy, quick, simple! Free for try, 7 days trial and if you will like it it's cost only $19 / year

Squarespace

Create beautiful websites and blogs easily

Benn CrawfordSenior Product Owner, DIA, New Zealand · Written
When I think about choosing a website builder, I'm not only looking at its ease to create/ build, but also the effort required to look after operating and maintaining the website over its lifetime. I think Squarespace is a great option for small businesses or org/ professionals when they don't have the headspace or experience to manage a website. Squarespace can take care for all the nitty gritty of running a website (hosting, domains, email, security, connecting payment for e-commerce) allowing these to fade into the background for the person running the site. Squarespace has purposefully constrained the options if gives users when building a website (template choices, design/ style control) and designed a minimalistic configuration UI that, while not perfect, is easy (enough) for most people use. It won't be the cheapest option but it offers good value.

I've been using Squarespace to host my portfolio for the past couple of years. They provide templates and tools to create just about any kind of site you need.

I second Squarespace for their templates and for their easy-to-use builder tools, plus a substantial FAQ and help section.

From the ability to copy any page to start your website to their ability to go straight from photoshop to the web PageCloud is the best!

Webflow

All-in-one web design platform

After using it for a while now, this is the best summary I've read about this website: "Webflow combines a fully customizable CMS with powerful visual website design tools, so you can build a custom database for every site, and design around your real content. And with nothing to install, automatic updates, and no PHP, it's the WordPress alternative you need."

One-of-a-kind site builder that generates readable, exportable HTML. Also good for cases in which you don't want to host - the CMS is extremely friendly for editors. The templates are quite nice as well. In using it to build a few sites in the past month or so, I've been more and more impressed with it, which is not usually the case with site builders. This one will outlast many of the others, I think.

I've used every website builder imaginable, and Webflow is in a league of its own. There is almost nothing you can't build using Webflow, period. It's not the easiest tool to learn at the start, as it does not pretend that containers, divs, and sections don't exist, but once you harness this tool, you'll discover it's perhaps the most powerful web tool on the market. It continues to be my favorite product I use as a designer. Completely revolutionized website building for me.

Launchaco

Instantly search domains, social media handles & logotypes.

Anne-Laure Le CunffFounder @ Lysa. Ex-Google. · Written
This is one is absolutely amazing, free, and lets you host the page on your own servers. It literally takes minutes to create a website with it and the result looks great. Not good for blogging, e-commerce, or anything dynamic, but perfect for a landing page.

Simvoly is the answer, it's the simplest and easiest website builder on the market. It's built with simplicity in mind and you have amazing customization at the same time. It's not cluttered with useless functionality as 99% of the builders. It has amazing templates, designer blocks, e-commerce and everything you can think of.

I use Weebly a lot for building websites. I also have access to the designer platform to do freelance web design/development on the side. The App Store is pretty powerful with tons of useful white label apps, structure elements, plugins like Printful and more.

In terms of freedom, potential, control, and community: WordPress is the clear winner! Although as it's default editor is not that powerful, thus you can add Tailor which enables a true drag-n-drop website builder experience.

I have looked at lots of various great website builders and this one won me over big time! If I could justify the paid version I would but I use Strikingly for a fundraiser but I tried it and the simple store is great along with some excellent features.

Strikingly is so super simple and all you need if looking for a great looking and mobile too. Loads of free stuff and resources. I have just gone to paid version and it is well worth it but you can have multiple sites up in matter of minutes in free version. It has a shop module as well in free and paid. I am running some school fundraisers on it and love it.
